Human powered transport
This report, prepared by PIARC Technical Committee 2.3 « Urban Areas and Integrated Urban Transport » deals with the topic of human powered transport, which is often ignored or lacks appropriate recognition as a viable mode of transport. However, it is a very important mode of transport from the point of view of its significance and sustainability.
The report focuses mainly on walking and cycling. A statistical analysis on these unmotorized modes of transport is presented, based on the results of a survey carried out with 21 European and Asian cities. Information is also provided on the infrastructure design for these two modes of transport in the cities considered.
